Gibbs City buck PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, October 29, 2013 9:58 AM | Updated ( Friday, November 01, 2013 10:46 AM )

Greg Stebbins of Iron River shot a 9-point buck at about 5 p.m., Friday, Oct. 25, in the Gibbs City area with his compound bow. Fortunately for Stebbins, DNR conservation officer Jason Wicklund spotted him in the area and helped him track and drag the buck out of the woods. Stebbins said, “Officer Wicklund also comforted my wife, Sheree, who claimed that she was entitled to that buck because it was at her hunting stand earlier in the week.” Greg Stebbins is the president of the Camp Gibbs Association and encourages hunters to get their tickets to the Camp Gibbs Hunter’s Fundraising Banquet on Nov. 16.

Moose comes to town
Tuesday, October 15, 2013 2:07 PM

Over the past week, a number of readers have reported the sighting a young bull moose in the Iron River area. The moose was taking a stroll down Lalley Road past the Secretary of State DMV office when Amy Johnson spotted him and snapped a photo. He may have been getting his on-road permit, being that he’s been doing a lot of traveling. He was also seen at the home of Dan Harper on Old Beechwood Road in Iron River Township as well as numerous other locations. The moose was seen in town on Monday and by Wednesday was heading west.
